Title: Short Story Writing Group

Description: Critique group for short story writers

Date: 26-11-2014
From 19:00 to 21:00

 

 

 

 

 

The Short Story Writing Group grew out of a MadLab and Comma Press course in short story writing, but anyone who writes short stories is welcome to join. We meet monthly to workshop one story by each member. Criticism is gentle and honest, and we’re always excited to see how a story grows and changes as a result. Sometimes there are biscuits.

Stories in any genre are welcome, and we’ll read flash fiction, nearly-novellas and everything in between. Anyone wanting to improve their work is welcome, and you don’t have to submit a story to join in.

Contact shortstoryworkshop@gmail.com to get your paws on the stories and submit your biscuit preferences.
